Security and safety paramount at TCS&D show

Peterborough, UK: Organisers of the Temperature Controlled Storage & Distribution (TCS&D) Exhibition, Conference and Awards say that they are “keeping it small and safe” for the event in September.

The event is set to return to the East of England Arena in Peterborough on the 7 and 8 September.

TCS&D 2021 will still be capping visitor numbers at 1,000 even though the show will follow the anticipated lifting of Covid restrictions. Other measures include thermal camera checks on arrival, numerous sanitiser stations and wider aisles.

“After a challenging 12 months for our sector and as we return to a more normal life we want TCS&D to deliver a host of tangible benefits to give our visitors a great couple of days,” said Martyn Cogan, exhibition director. “TCS&D will provide an unrivalled opportunity for anyone involved in the temperature controlled supply chain sector to learn and network.”

The bi-annual TCS&D show will incorporate the ‘Cold Chain Hub’ conference – the programme for which is being devised by the Cold Chain Federation – making the event a fantastic opportunity to learn about the latest technologies and trends in the industry.

“There is plenty of space to spread out at the East of England Arena,” said Martyn Cogan, “and we’ll also be locating more exhibits than ever in the new TCS&D Outdoor Marketplace.”

Visitors to TCS&D 2021 will be able to experience numerous events:

Ride & Drive returns
The Ride & Drive Experience track in the outside display area will make a welcome return. “This proved hugely popular at the last exhibition as it gives visitors the best possible opportunity to experience vehicle handling and performance,” said Cogan. “We are anticipating a wide range of vehicles on display in the outdoor area, including more electric vehicles than ever before.”

Electric vehicle exclusive
The latest exhibitor to sign up to the show, NRG Fleet Services, will be exclusively showcasing the Electra 19t Refrigerated Electric Vehicle at TCS&D 2021.

Exhibitors already signed up for TCS&D 2021 include refrigerated vehicle suppliers Gray & Adams, MAR Cooling Solutions and ABC Trailers Solutions (available for all Schmitz Cargobull requirements); transport refrigeration manufacturers Carrier Transicold and Hubbard Products; cold chain electric vehicle supplier NRG Fleet Services; transport refrigeration service provider Longhurst Refrigeration; diesel-free transport cooling & energy manufacturer Hultsteins; rental & contract hire specialists Prohire and VMS Fleet Management; portable cold storage supplier Seven Refrigeration; supplier of new and used refrigerated vehicles Stockport Truck Centre; commercial vehicle repairers Yaxley Coachworks; protective clothing supplier Goldfreeze; insulated products supplier Polar Thermal Packaging; refrigeration and cooling specialist Star Refrigeration; cold store construction specialist ISD Solutions; automated racking solutions supplier SSI Schaefer; fire protection specialist Wagner Group; software provider Procuro Euro; and logistics recruitment agency Unity Resourcing Solutions.

The cold chain industry awards
The annual TCS&D Awards (@TCSDAwards) will take place at the end of the first day of the exhibition on Tuesday 7th September. The awards will once again recognise and reward excellence in the cold chain in a variety of categories. “As the 2020 awards had to become a virtual event, it will be wonderful for professionals in the industry to celebrate and network together again with their peers, albeit with extra safety measures as necessary,” said Cogan. The registration form for free entry in a range of award categories will be available at from 1st April.
